Physical Therapists
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Marilyn was a great-grandmother. One day she took a terrible fall. She needed surgery for her broken hip. She went to a rehabilitation hospital to heal. Who helped her to walk again? A physical therapist did.
2     One day as Joseph was walking to his car to go to work, he slipped on a patch of ice. He broke his leg. He needed to use crutches for a bit. Who helped him learn to use them? A physical therapist did.
3     Nicholas is one year old. He was born with a disorder that has hindered his motor development. He attends a special gym three days a week where he can strengthen his muscles by playing with balls, benches, swings, and slides. Who helps him play and grow strong? A physical therapist does.
4     So what is physical therapy? It is a special medical treatment that helps individuals move their bodies. Which people does it help? It is meant for those with disabilities, illnesses, or injuries that interfere with movement. It is meant to keep the effects of a disability to a minimum, to help someone feel better, and to speed up recovery. Physical therapy is prescribed by doctors in the orthopedic, neurological, heart, and respiratory fields.
